It would not be wrong to say that a free and independent media is a core stone of any successfully democracy in the world. Sting Operations is one such method used by the media to ensure transparency and accountability and give citizens a perspective regarding social, political and economic issues concerning the country at large. Though sting operations were meant to empower the society; however recent instances of profit and sensationalism have made one to question the intent of such operations. Therefore, the persistent question to answer is the admissibility and legitimacy of such operations as evidence in the eyes of laws so as to no make a travesty of justice.
In this research paper, the author shall throw light the question of moral righteousness and the judicial interpretation on the question of admissibility of illegally obtained evidence.
